Grants of up to $75,000 to USA institutions of higher education, government agencies, and tribal governments for historical projects. Funding is intended for organizations that have been negatively impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Eligible projects include ambitious new initiatives as well as smaller projects that address problems that have arisen because of the pandemic.
The AHA’s Grants to Sustain and Advance the Work of Historical Organizations Program provides funding to support dozens of small history-related organizations adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. These grants fund short-term projects that explore new ideas or build on experiments initiated during the pandemic—from virtual programming or online publications to using new technologies or expanding audiences and accessibility.
During the project period, successful applicants will gather during AHA-hosted online workshops to cultivate community and mutual consultation among grantees. Two workshop series will provide opportunities for professional and organizational development and networking. The first workshop series will bring together similar organizations. The second will include all grantees pursuing similar projects with different approaches. The goal is to encourage long-term connections that both identify and respond to the new needs of entities that are essential to the work of historians, but often too small to take risks, or lack the resources to implement the creativity of their staff and volunteers.
